Language Base

There will be much research and input into the new Scottish Gaelic Dictionary which is to be funded by the Scottish Government and others. The time-span for the project is some 30 years. Gaelic has according to the 2001 Census 58,652 speakers (1.2% of the Scottish population), a decline of 7,300 from 1991. The ancient language has underpinned the cultural life of the Western Isles and this dictionary will provide an authoritative resource that will be at hand and, undoubtedly, online.

Scottish Islands Explorer - a resource of sorts
